2014 IS RAVEN’S 40th ANNIVERSARY!

RAVEN IS HEADLINING HEAVY SOUND FESTIVAL!

2014 IS THE REUNION OF HEAVY SOUND FESTIVAL, JUNE 7th, IN POPERINGE, BELGIUM!

_______________________________

Tickets: http://heavysoundfestival.bigcartel.com/product/tickets

_______________________________

HEAVY SOUND FESTIVAL – HISTORY:

The Heavy Sound Festival was a Heavy Metal/Hard Rock Festival back in the ’80s. The first edition took place in Bruges (Belgium), in 1983. The 2nd & 3rd moved to Poperinge for ’84 and ’85.

Bands – 1st edition:
Ostrogoth, Killer, Golden Earring, Viva, Baron Rojo, Warning, Uriah heep, Gary Moore…

Bands 2nd edition:
Motorhead, Twisted Sister, Metallica, H-bomb, Faithful Breath, Mercyful Fate, Lita Ford

Bands 3rd edition:
Pretty Maids, Slayer, UFO, Lee Aaron, Tokyo Blade, Warlock, Crossfire…

The festival was all about giving new upcoming bands the chance to be heard and some of them made it pretty far!

In 1985 there were some complaints about vandalism, never knew if this was true or just a rumor. Anyhow, the organizers thought it was better to just leave it as it was and stopped organizing the event.

It’s official that the heavy sound is totally back, with a new organization and the crew of the previous editions!!

ASKA – Confirmed As Friday Night Headliners For Warriors Of Metal Fest VII

Aska - promo band pic - 2014 - B&W - #36633

Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is very excited to welcome back the only band to headline the fest three years in a row. Dallas-based Traditional Metal professionals ASKA, who headlined in 2009, 2010 and 2011, has officially signed on as the Friday night headliner for our 7th annual Warriors Of Metal Fest. ASKA will be supporting their sixth studio album, Fire Eater which was released through Germany’s Pure Steel Records in September of last year.

The 7th annual Warriors of Metal Fest will be held June 27 – 28 at O’Shecky’s LIVE Bar & Grill in Columbus, Ohio.

Aska - Fire Eater - promo cover pic - 2013

Band founder, vocalist and guitarist, George Call states: “When we here at ASKA were approached by the brain trust about coming back to Warriors of Metal and headlining Friday’s portion of the fest I said, ‘Awesome! Who do we gotta kill?’ Not because we actually wanted to kill anyone but you get the sentiment right? After all, who wouldn’t want to get back to, perform for and hang out with those beloved portions of our extended metal family that the Warriors of Metal Fest has come to represent? See, WOM is not just a fest where we perform for fans but one in which we bleed, sweat, laugh and commune with our brothers and sisters of Metal. It really is one big family and the ‘blood’ that unites us is STEEL. And so it is with that sentiment that we look forward to this latest installment of the Warriors of Metal Festival, now indoors, come June – because just as much as you want to see ASKA, ASKA wants to see you. Dig? Hail and see you all at WOM Fest VII!”

The band’s official music video for the track “Dead Again” can be seen and heard below:

ASKA is brought back to Warriors of Metal Fest VII due to the generous fan sponsorships by Kit & Jen Ekman from Mobile, Alabama, brothers Edward and Mike Schmidt from Cleveland, Ohio, Dennis Schwan and Megan Stewart from Detroit, Michigan, and last but not least, Lance Souther & Laurie Rhodes from Dayton, Ohio. We are grateful for their contributions and constant support through the years.

Tickets are on sale and various levels of sponsorship opportunities are now available at the Fest’s website at www.warriorsofmetal.org.

Benedictum vocalist, Veronica “The V” Freeman states: “We are so damned excited to play at the Warriors Of Metal Fest VII this year. It was a blast for me to be part of the crowd and announce a few bands last year as co-host of the event and be a part of that metal community, but it will be even better to actually play. Now, top that off with the fact that we will be bringing with us the talented and crazy Leather Leone of Chastain to jam some old and new Chastain tunes! I encourage everyone to come out and support Metal and have a kick ass time with us and all the great bands performing. We love ya! The V, Benedictum”

POSSESSED – To Headline Obscene Extreme Festival, Cattle Decapitation Announced!

Possessed - promo band live pic - 2014 - #66933

Without Death Metal’s founding fathers, Possessed, Obscene Extreme would be a very different festival indeed.

Forming in San Francisco in 1983, the band dragged thrash metal into darker and heavier places with their classic albums ‘Seven Churches’ and ‘Beyond The Gates’ on Combat Records. Possessed created a whole genre and then faded away like ghosts.

Reforming around vocalist and founder Jeff Becerra in 2007, the original death cult are back and they’re writing new material too. Obscene Extreme 2014, prepare yourself for a new chapter in the unholy book of the dead…

Cattle Decapitation - promo band and logo pic - 2014 - #4046

Making an overdue return to Obscene Extreme since their debut visit in 2010, furiously outspoken death/grind San Diego outfit Cattle Decapitation have been confirmed to play at Obscene Extreme Festival 2014. Obscene Extreme organisers are proud to welcome the US powerhouse who will take their razor-wire brand of technical death/grind back to Trutnov, Czech Republic to pick up where they left off… filling the pit with teeth, blood and bones.

Having set a terrifying new standard with 2012′s ‘Monolith Of Insanity’ – a chaotic slaughterhouse floor of chainsaw riffs and bolt gun drumming – Cattle Decapitation are at their absolute best.

Obscene Extreme 2014, prepare for the slaughter!!!

Obscene Extreme tickets are on sale now: http://www.obsceneextreme.cz/

LORDS OF THE TRIDENT – Confirmed For Warriors Of Metal Fest VII

Lords Of The Trident - promo band pic - 2014 - #58810

Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is very excited to welcome back the Madison, Wisc., power metallers who rocked the Warriors Of Metal Fest III & IV Open Air shows in 2010 and 2011, the LORDS OF THE TRIDENT!

Fest organizer Datis Alaee comments: “Not only did this band inject a lot of fun into our annual summer festival but the band’s most outgoing and ‘vocal’ personality, Ty Christian has been a source of incredible support for us, showing up each subsequent year in 2012 right in the middle of the storm we were being hit with and 2013 with more and more metalheads from Wisconsin to enjoy themselves during our metal weekend in Ohio.  Those friends have since become new festival fans who are becoming repeat attendees!  That kind of support is very rare and very much appreciated!!!”

Band founder and vocalist, Lord Fang Von Wrathenstein states: “The LORDS OF THE TRIDENT are excited to be able to return to the Warriors of Metal fest, and do battle with all of the other true METAL bands and fans out there. It has been two years since our last appearance at the fest, and this has given the fest organizer the proper time to rebuild the stage, put out all of the fires, bury their dead, and fill in the giant crater caused by our 2011 performance. We are once again ready to melt faces, abduct Ohio’s women, and slay all the unworthy who stand in our path. We sincerely hope that the venue has installed the necessary shock absorbing concrete slabs to withstand the earth shattering, inferno-producing metal we plan to unleash. WARRIORS! Ready your axes and prepare your strongest armor – YOU SHALL NEED IT!”

Resistance - promo band pic - logo banner - 2014

January 31, 2014  Cincinnati, Ohio - The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization has confirmed the addition of West Coast heavy metallers RESISTANCE to the Warriors of Metal VII Fest. Only the third California-based act in the fest’s year history, the Lion Music Recording artists will be supporting the release of their fourth studio album, tentatively titled Knights of Doom.

Co-founder/bassist Paul Shigo states: “We are honored to be invited to perform at the 7th annual Warriors of Metal Festival. We’ve kept an eye on this Festival and watched it continually grow since it’s inception. We respect the credibility and reputation of this Festival, the organizer Datis Alaee, and the caliber of the Heavy Metal music and bands that have performed here throughout the years. WOM Fest’s dedication to the fans and music reminds me of an up and coming Keep it True or Headbangers Open Air Festival, but in the U.S.”

The band has posted their single “VLAD” below:
